My daughter is younger than HelloGiggles daughter, so the art well, turned out differently. My little one wanted an owl on her shirt too, so we added a stamp to make her happy. *smiles*
|Decide on where you want you tie dye circles. |
Drape the front of the t-shirt over a cup and wrap a rubber band around.
**MAKE SURE you put cardboard inside the shirt - when you drop on the alcohol it will leak through to the backside.
|**DO NOT USE the metallic Sharpies, the colors don't run.|
Skinny lines and little details don't work well, we learned.
|Watching the colors spread was so much fun!|
|Our little owl stamp turned out pretty cute!|
|When the Sharpie art is finished, |
pop the T-shirt into the dryer to heat set design and dry the alcohol.
This is a project that could serve many purposes - a zoo outing with school or friends, birthday party, or perhaps a family reunion or girls' sleepover!
UPDATE:: The pastel Sharpies we used DID fade significantly in the wash. Perhaps the bold colors would do better? Will have to try this again - such a fun project! - 9.25.12
